The two things that Goblins have going for them are their above-average agility and extremely low hiring fee. Goblins are quite good at dodging around other players, and this fact is reflected in their Dodge and Stunty skills. Occasionally, some unwitting Goblin will happen to sneak through the carnage of the line of scrimmage and may actually score a touchdown!
One area that Goblins have excelled in far and above the other Blood-Bowl-playing races is in the use of Secret Weapons on the pitch. Goblin coaches will find a wide variety of Goblin Star Players toting illegal and often extremely violent Secret Weapons under the noses of the referees. Add to these weapons a Star Player Troll like Ripper Bolgrot, and the Goblin Team actually starts to become something of a threat.
